‘SNL’ Was Extra Curious about Sydney Sweeney’s Boobs Than Sydney Sweeney


Like standup comedy the place each single factor is humorous and does not waste your time? Observe Cracked Comedy Membership on Instagram and YouTube for precisely that. 

Not that way back, I rewatched all of the Saturday Evening Stay episodes hosted by youngsters. It was a very good refresher course on how SNL has traditionally handled younger feminine hosts, from Britney Spears’ breasts that had minds of their very own to Lindsay Lohan as Hermione falling out of her Gryffindor uniform to the Olsen twins reminding viewers, “Bear in mind — we’re authorized in 4 weeks!” Each probability it might, early aughts SNL slobbered over Hollywood’s youngest stars. No less than the present has moved previous its ogling previous, I believed. After which Sydney Sweeney got here to Studio 8H final night time.

Let’s make just a few issues clear. I really like intercourse jokes! Sweeney is 26. And nobody is getting offended by a low-cut high in 2024. However what made the Sydney Sweeney-hosted SNL such an eye-roller was how lazy the boob jokes have been. Take the opening monologue, for instance. Sweeney talks about coming to Hollywood as a younger girl with a PowerPoint plan to audition for reveals, discover an agent and get a SAG card. If that didn’t work, she had a Plan B:

That’s the joke: “Boobs.” Get it? Come to think about it, “Present boobs” was downright intelligent in comparison with “Hooters Waitress,” a sketch about, nicely, you recognize what it’s a sketch about.

Once more, nothing inherently horrible about casting Sweeney as a Hooters waitress. You’d merely hope there could be a joke past “She will get large ideas as a result of she has large breasts.” Even a easy twist like Sweeney being the least profitable server at Hooters would give the sketch someplace to go. As a substitute, it was an excuse to place Sweeney in a decent T-shirt so she might bend over loads. 

If I have been to guess final week what sorts of sketches SNL would dream up for Sweeney, I’d dismiss concepts like “Hooters waitress” and “sexiest cheerleader in highschool” as method too apparent and, frankly, insulting to Sweeney. That pitch assembly final Monday should have been awkward: “Okay, so on this one, we stare at your boobs.”

I’m unsure if it’s higher or worse that SNL did dream up a intercourse sketch for Sweeney that was really humorous whereas subverting stereotypes — worse solely in that it proves it may be carried out. In “Bowen’s Straight,” Sweeney has a crush on candy solid member Bowen Yang however is aware of she has no probability as a result of he’s homosexual. Oh no, reveal Heidi Gardner and Ego Nwodim. Yang is as straight as they arrive — he simply pretends to be homosexual as a result of it earns him simple laughs. The Sweeney/Yang hookup was the steamiest factor on the present — and it by no means pointed the digital camera at Sweeney’s boobs. It was additionally the funniest of the night time as a result of it bothered to do one thing surprising. 

Does Sweeney have any comedian expertise? Onerous to inform from final night time’s SNL. However not less than throughout “Bowen’s Straight,” she hinted that she might need extra to supply than a decent T-shirt.
